Fantastic perspective, great motive and lovely lightning. And, of course, Title itself is more than appropriate. Kudos/.

That's a kinda place you end up at after having lost your memories... it's all dark and lots of walking corpses around, you don't know what's yer name, where you are and how to get out, you're all in pain and there's this flying skull that tells you 'bout the tattoos on yer back. Kinda barmy, really. :D

That's the way it was supposed to be ;)
i was really shocked how f*cked up this place became in just one year...
one year ago, all the surgical tools been there and the place was in mint condition, now it is trashed, sprayed and has junkies all over the building. that's really sad...

Thank you my friend ;)
but you have a lot of seriously nice place in the us as well...
but being caught for trespassing is not funny at all for a foreigner unfortunately...
but i think i'm going to hit some spots next year anyways, being caught is just not an option lol

Yea, no one wants to get caught. We just don't have the Cool old building around here like Hospitals and stuff like that.. most of the time there boarded up and or Locked up or being bull dozed. and when you can find placed there filled with Homeless people and Who know what you will get your self in to from there.. I just Love the Industrial work and would love to get a chance to go shoot some places like that.. Your work has always inspired me to want to do more of that.. Just wish there was Places to do it here..

and the distances between the spots are not as "short" as in europe ;)
we have different feel of distances here i guess lol
maybe because fuel is much more expensive haha

Yes Detroit would be a GREAT City to go shoot in.. but yes the Crack heads are going to be Bad there.. lol

The buildings around here are not as close but Some city's have a lot more then Others.. I live close to San Francisco and there are parts of it that have a lot of Run Down and Abandon buildings but getting access to it is a pain unless you go through a window or tack down the owners and hope they will let you in without a large Fee!

Here in Sacramento where I live there is not as much.. But the Rail yard will be Cool. Since I messaged you last I have tracked down someone that is making calls as well speak about getting access for me for a few hours! I hope it all works out! There are guards there with guns and they don't mess around, so sneaking in will get me arrested or shot for sure :laughing:

Haha, yeah that is another issue, people shoot at you in the us ;)
even though i encountered people with machine guns here in europe as well (and it's relly not funny if you look out a window and see a guy in camouflage with a machine gun pointing at you ;))

yeah, most of the good locations i know are more or less on the east coast and mid of the us though...

OMG, you got some really really amazing looking really old fashioned hospitals in the us ;)
even though i didn't say getting is easy haha
but it's not like a walk in the park here in europe as well ;) sneakin around security and finding risky entry points is part of the game ;)
but if i get caught in the us, i will not be able to enter the country for 5-10 years (additionaly to the 2000$ fine ;))

at least you only have to pay the fine if you have an us citizenship lol ;)
place looks really cool!
i'd love to hit detroit, nearly 50 percent of the buildings in the centre are abandoned...
but it's a tough place though ;) you don't want to mess around with crackheads ;)
